The Boy and the Bear
One of the big differences in Dave Shelton's illustrated children's novel, though, is that it's the animal that does the rowing. The lovingly designed jacket and hardback cover, with its slightly mottled paper and "worn" spine, evokes memories of Mervyn Peake's Letters from a Lost Uncle or Reif Larsen's more recent The Selected Works of T. But despite the fact that Shelton is currently best known as a comic book illustrator, A Boy and a Bear is less highly illustrated than either of these. The "complimentary on-board entertainment" is I-Spy, limited to what's outside the boat which is usually "something beginning with s". As for the food, that's soon reduced to The Last Sandwich which is slightly glowing, but comes in very handy. When the boy goes so far as to suggest that they are lost in the middle of nowhere, the captain — the bear in his captain's hat — becomes very indignant. This is a bear who doesn't like to make plans.
Welcome to another Touring Picture Book Club! In this book we meet a little boy whose only wish is to find a friend to play with, he searches all over for someone but with no joy. Until one day a message floats across the water on a little paper boat, a message from a friend. But then, Bear starts to build a treehouse and the boy and the Bear become firm friends in their new den. They stay in their treehouse all summer and through to autumn, having a magical time playing together. Until winter comes with the first fall of snow and Bear disappears. The boy is distraught, where has his friend gone?
Myself and the Touring Picture Book team are sharing a wonderful story of friendship this month. I also completed a craft with my little ladies that connected to the book. My girls and I first came across this book at our local library last year and we thought it was such a lovely read. Since then The Boy and the Bear has received much praise and in September this year a paperback version of the book was made available. He receives a message on a paper boat asking if he would like to play. The boy is so happy and the sender of the message turns out to be Bear.
This looks awesome! My boys would love this.

Children love to pretend that they are the bear or the boy as they practice deep breathing. This effective stress and anger management technique, know as diaphragmatic breathing can have a calming positive impact on your child. It can lower stress. It can be used to decrease pain and anger. This is the first story I wrote to help my son fall asleep.
